El Zaguán restaurant and bar
This charming eponymously named restaurant on Madero street between Marquez de Leon and Benito Juarez opens its patio door at 8 in the morning, beckoning one inside.
A zaguán is a covered patio or hallway adjacent to a house that leads directly to the street, hence the name...
Once inside the patio area, framed artwork by local photographers and painters are on display, giving a colorful counterpoint to the cloth tablecoverings and the blooming plants.
Absorbing more of the detail lovingly selected one sees a woven living fence that helps screen the kitchen from the tables.
Absorbing the menu takes a touch more time. One may choose from a small selection of filling for tacos, or opt for eggs with, omelets, hotcakes, chilaquiles and other light breakfasts. Coffee of course, or you can opt for beers or say, a bloody mary if you need something more substantial to greet the day.

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
